The Outlook

Hadley has been a popular bet and DFS play this season, but he has struggled lately, failing to make it to Sunday in three of his past four events. Still, he's an intriguing fit at Carnoustie given his solid scrambling and iron play; he ranks third in the field in Strokes Gained: Approach this season. He hasn't really put it all together yet, but he's a nice DFS value play and could be worth a look at a top-25 bet.
